1/8/2018 - Stated meeting of the Society - January 8, 2018

The next Stated Meeting of the Society of the Friendly Sons of Saint Patrick in the City of New York will be held on Monday, January 8, 2018 at The Princeton Club of New York City, which is located at 15 West 43 Street, between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. Cocktails will be served at 6:15 pm, followed by dinner at 7 pm – both held on the second floor of the Club. As always, a jacket and tie are required. Please take a moment to kindly RSVP below.

Our speaker for the evening will be Ciarán Madden, Consul General of Ireland in New York. Ciarán has been with the Department of Foreign Affairs since November 1994. Among his roles prior to becoming Consul General, Ciarán served as Ambassador of Ireland to the United Arab Emirates (also accredited to Qatar and Kuwait) from 2009 to 2013.

As always, guests are welcome at the January meeting and the fee per guest is $50. This night is a great recruiting opportunity in the more relaxed climate of a quarterly dinner, so please bring along a guest. Members are required to show membership cards to the Stewards who will be posted at the entrance to our meeting room. If necessary, membership dues can be paid at the meeting.

As previously mentioned at our November meeting, the Society will hold a whiskey tasting at the Consulate General of Ireland, 345 Park Avenue on Thursday January 25, 2018 at 5.30pm. This will be a recruiting event for The Society and members are therefore strongly encouraged to arrive with a guest potentially interested in membership. There is no charge to attend. Please RSVP by email to Jackie@friendlysonsnyc.com or by calling (212) 269-1770. It is important that you RSVP for this event as we will need to provide the names of both the member and his prospective member to the Consulate.

In closing, I wish all of you and your families a very merry Christmas and a healthy and happy New Year!
